    I have been working at Leon County School Board full-time

    Pros

    Working here for 6 months now. I enjoy the environment, the benifits sure do add up to be a big help and the work is rewarding.

    Cons

    The salary is well under market range, there is little space for flexibility in my schedule but most importantly the older buildings aren't great for those of us with allergies.

    I have been working at Leon County School Board part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lot of great teachers and staff, challenging work at times, but worth it. You can really make a difference.

    Cons

    Students pass but remain in a stupor. Not being completely reached by current system. Too much focus on testing and not enough on creating good citizens. Sub rate is babysitting rate (higher in other districts). They want you to babysit, which is disingenuous. Too much focus on procedures and certifications, and not enough common sense.

    Advice to Management

    Ban phones in classroom. Fight back against too much testing. Do not carry dead weight on the payroll. Do not carry students who have defiance/anger problems (most other issues can be dealt with). Do not move the deck chairs around and pretend something is getting done.

    Pros

    Swift Creek Middle School is one of the best middle schools in Leon County. The administration is organized and supportive.

    Cons

    The only con side is that there is low turnover and there are rarely any new positions available. But even the con can be considered a pro!
